Operational Excellence Manager

Icon Holdings Services

Deliver and embed the next phase of our continuous improvement journey. Role can be based in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane!

Slade Health is a national provider of sterile compounding services from its three TGA licenced manufacturing facilities based in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales.  As a well-established and respected industry name, Slade has been producing aseptically compounded pharmaceutical products including chemotherapy, analgesic and antibiotic drugs, for use by patients in hospitals for over 50 years.

Following a number of years of rapid growth, Slade Health is now positioned to launch the next phase of its journey to achieving Operational Excellence.  This will be focused across all of our sites and all aspects of our operations.  Critical to the success of this is the appointment of an Operational Excellence / Continuous Improvement Manager to lead the development of a culture and implementation of systems to support this journey.  The role will ultimately be responsible for delivering a program of identified initiatives to achieve quality, service and productivity targets.  The bespoke and customised nature of our services relies heavily on our dedicated operations and quality teams and there are limited opportunities for automation.

Offered initially as a full time 12 month contract and reporting directly to the General Manager, the successful outcome of the project will likely lead to a permanent position being created.  There is flexibility for the role to be based at any of our sites; Geebung QLD, Mount Kuring-gai NSW or Mount Waverley VIC.

We’re looking for a curious and analytical individual who can create an awareness and culture of lean and continuous improvement by the identification, prioritisation and implementation of sustainable solutions to the required operational and quality standards.  This will require effective communication skills to establish and maintain positive relationships with key stakeholders across all areas of production, logistics, scheduling, quality and WHS across the division.

It’s essential that the successful candidate have significant experience in a production environment, preferably in Operational Excellence/ Continuous Improvement roles.  Lean 6 Sigma Green/ Black Belt certification will also be highly regarded, as will demonstrated success in managing change within TGA regulatory framework.

If you think you have the qualities we are looking for, we want to hear from you!  In submitting your application, please attach a resume and include a cover letter explaining what has attracted you to apply for the role.
